I am 13 years old. When I was 9 I had
an experience, that I haven't told anyone since now. I haven't told anyone
because I thought that no one would believe me.
One night my mum put me and my brother to bed
around 8:00. It was a Friday night and we were so tired. At some point
through the night I had a very severe asthma attack. I had a chest infection
and my mum was very worried because the night before the doctors wouldn't
give me anything more than an inhaler. I went into my parents room to get
it. But I then realised that I had left it in my own room. I already couldn't
breathe, and I think because I walked a little bit my chest got even tighter,
but this time it got so tight that no air could get into my lungs. I collapsed
on the floor. The next thing that happened is something that I will never
forget. I opened my eyes and I was in a large room. It was so dark. Then
I saw a white light. I looked into the light, and walking out was a woman.
I couldn't see her face but I could see her long blonde hair. She stood
there for a few seconds. I was about to say something, but then she interupted.
"It's not your time yet," she said. The voice was so calming, I knew I
could trust her. "I want you to close your eyes, and when you open them
you will be okay, I promise" I listened. I closed my eyes. Then I could
hear my mum shouting my name. I opened my eyes, and I was in an ambulance.
I didn't say anything to anyone about this experience, it has remained
a secret to me for 4 years. I believe I was given a second chance at life.
